cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. [applause] yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the

] can be prime minister explain why the energy bill contains no such commitment and why he is broken that promise? >> i have to say to the honorable gentleman he is completed wrong. the energy bill does exactly what i said in a house. it is legislating to force congress to give people the lowest tariff. >> thank you, mr. speaker. schools -- [shouting] >> i'm sorry to mr. speaker the opposition -- >> order. gift courtesy. there was a collective groan. [laughter] >> notably, notably on the opposition benches, and it's quite inexplicable. i have called for the good doctor. let's hear from the good doctor.

in the republican side is if you buy into green energy or if you play footsie on this issue, you do so at your political peril. >> you do, absolutely. and that's a big change, and it is important. again, i remember four, five or even three years ago, john, a lot of republicans, they would play games with this. they'd say, "okay, oh gosh, i think i need a green energy agenda. but i won't go all the way and support cap-and-trade." they did. they tried to walk down the middle and that's wrong. i think it's philosophically inconsistent, but it's also politically disadvantageous. and we've worked hard to make that so, by the way. the left has had the edge as long as i can remember. they march out to the towns, do whatever they are told to do... one thing we've changed with afp, is we now have an army too. and we can do calls and e-mails and letters and rallies, events, and pressure. and i think that's made a big difference. our side didn't have that five six years ago on this issue. we do now. i do think it's a new day for that reason. (applause) >> hockenberry: this new day has dramatically transf
, we'll discuss chuck haggle's nomination with someone that's been through the process, former energy secretary bill richardson that just got back from a trip to north korea. we'll be right back. >>> the united nations security council is meeting to talk about north korea and what to do after the country carried out the third underground nurk lar guest. let me bring in bill richardson that just returned from a trip to north korea and u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and former energy secretary. good to see you, governor. good morning >> thank you, chris. nice to be with you. >> i am wondering if you got any indication when you were there they were thinking about doing this. >> well, we d we tried to persuade them against further launches and nuclear tests, but they basically said that in response to the security council restrictions and sanctions that were imposed before, that they were going to proceed with this test, and we tried to say to them you're going to be isolated. you're not going to get the advantages of the internet and google and eric schmidt, the ceo of google was with me wh
and have a conversation. we have john felmy who will talk to us about energy. he won't do forecasting of energy prices but he'll talk about the energy situation and what we'll see in more exploration of energy supplies. it is something that his chamber has made a focal point of the growth strategy. it will be interesting to hear from john. we're also going to hear from frank nothaft. he's an expert i've known frank for -- i won't say because he looks younger than i do. it is a long time. he's an expert in the housing market and if that is one of the bright spots in the economy today. then finally, we're going have bob costello who is the chief economist at the a.t.a. we build stuff and we put it on trucks and move it around. if you keep track of the trucks you can keep track of the economy. i'm happy they all agreed to be here this morning. if you look at the u.s. economy you see an economy growing three and half years ago but the problem is it never hit its stride. it grew but it grew at 3.5%. we never made up the g.d.p. gap. so you have seen this chart in the recent c.b. o. but it i

. >> of course solar and wind energy should be a part of our energy portfolio. but god also blessed america with abundant coal, oil, and natural gas. >> i mean, he likes the wind and the solar, but he doesn't like the stuff that is under the ground, like coal and oil and natural gas. >> instead of wasting more taxpayer money on so-called clean energy companies like solyndra, let's open up more federal lands for safe and responsible exploration. >> they should have done more studying on solyndra and less studying on that drilling. i'm going to open lands for exploration. >> de-romneyification failed. the republicans' official response to barack obama's state of the union was essentially a new version of the stump speech of the guy who just lost the presidential election to barack obama. and the house that is the emotional centerpiece of the speech turns out is a house for sale. and the criticism of the criticism of the speech is not based on the president's speech at all. and they had him vote no on the violence against women act with 21 other republican guys right before he gave this speech
in their interest. very helpful senator. he sits on both the senate energy and environmental committees. faced with that kind of opposition, the president says if he has to, he'll by pass congress and issue an executive action. >> if congress won't act soon to protect future generations i will. i will direct. [ applause ] >> i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> the president did the same on another big progressive issue raising the minimum wage, beating the republicans to the economic punch. >> here's an idea that governor romney and i actually agreed on last year. let's tie the minimum wage to the cost of living so that it final becomes a wage you can live on. >> the republican presidential candidate may have backed the idea but that didn't stop the rest of the party from jumping all over the president. everyone from john boehner to marco rubio called raising the minimum wage a job-killing
that trend and take one oracle -- 1-2% of our economy every year to convert to green energy, we would be much further ahead. i'm so tired of the republican party to always be anti-green. we have an issue on this planet. i would like to see some things done in regard to that. green energy is important, and we should pursue it. thank you so much. guest: nobody is saying that it is not important. what they are seeing is that the federal government does not need the department of energy -- it does not need to be putting money into loan programs for companies like solyndra and fiskar. others -- they have gone bankrupt the. have gotten hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars for loan programs and all of those companies that got those loans with that taunt of money have gone bankrupt. something is wrong with the vetting process and something is wrong with technology that it is not working in the marketplace. i had solar panels on my house in tennessee as a test keys thursday as a test case 30 + years ago. they're looking to see if we could get enough heat units per day in solar panels. we never got

the president outlined in the re-election campaign. >> goals in manufacturing, energy, education, national security and the deficit. real achievable plans that will lead to new jobs. >> top republicans including senator mcconnell already critical of the speech. >> i strongly suspect the white house will subject us to yet another campaign blitz. frankly, i could write the scripts myself and will be told the president's hands are tied by the sequester he proposed, signed and refuses to get rid of. >> we learned the president will make a major announcement of afghanistan announcing that 34,000 u.s. troops will return home from the region exactly one year from today. that's about half the troops there now. joining us now, maryland congressman chris van hollen, ranking member of the house budget committee. thank you for joining us. >> great to be with you, tamron. >> first, what are the expectations for the president tonight? >> well, i think as you said the president's going to lay out his plan for xik growth, for job creation but focusing on the fact it is not good enough just to have economi
of immigration reform, raising the minimum wage and energy independence. quoted john f. kennedy 1962 speech saying the substitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress. you agenda he made few concessions to republicans. it remans to be seen whether the president can break away from the bitter partisanship and dysfunction of his first term and whether he can strike the grand bargains the country needs. >> the greatest nation on worth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crises to the next we can't do it. [applause] let's agree, let's agree right here right now to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time and always uphold the full faith and credit of the united states of america. our economy is stronger. when we honor else the talents and ingenuity of striving hopeful immigrants. and right now, leaders from the business labor law enforcement faith communities, they all agree that the time has come to pass comprehensive immigration reform. now is the time to do it. know is the time to get it done. if you want to vote no, t

that kind of time and emotional energy to gun eviolence. i think it shows he wants to fight on that issue. >> kelly o'donnell, you were there. were you able to gauge any reaction in the chamber among members of congress? >> it was interesting. i've been in the chamber for a number of this president's addresses and president bush before. and i think early in the evening, there was more of a sense of a flat energy. i don't know if that's because we've just come off the inaugural address. it seemed to take a while for the room to sort of ignite. when you got to the point where there was the discussion of guns, i was about five feet or so in front of gabby giffords and her family. so i was able to see how people around them looked as they stood first quietly and then applauding. and then i also could see how some of the other family members had brought photos of loved ones. i was also struck by when sort of the kind of emotion of the moment had faded, there was one woman, i presume a mother, who shouted out kind of picking up on the president's cadence, the name of her loved one and then repe
of the clean energy efforts that the barack obama administration put so much stock into. this from a communications point, this is a reminder why corporate pr people started audiotaping and interviewing the interview simultaneous with the reporter for, i don't know, 60 minutes coming in to do it and so on and this takes it to a new level. and the fact there's little black box-- in fact many have them. we know how fast john corzine was going, and this whole data and whether or not it can be trusted. on the tesla motors blog there's charts and graphs showing every last move they make and times disputes and kirsten is right. definitely needs somebody to come there and investigate the reporters claims and tesla's claims. >> and if he's doing 80 miles per hour on any of those roads a police officer should send him a ticket. when you get a bad review in the new york times, whether it's a broadway show that quickly closes or a car like this, the times readers are target audience for selling the car. it's a bad thing and the company has a lot invested and mr. broder has a lot invested, if
